Damian Green on London Metropolitan University visas


Immigration Minister Damian Green said London Metropolitan University, which has had been stripped of the right to allow in overseas students, had been "very very seriously deficient as a sponsor".

The Conservative MP said it "did not know if students were turning up or not" and explained the government had given genuine students 60 days to find a new course.

He said: "I am not chucking anyone out.. I am enforcing the rules."

The university has been banned from teaching and recruiting overseas students, leaving more than 2,000 undergraduates potentially facing deportation.
